Enjoy the first cookbook from the founders of the increasingly popular Busan BBQ and discover the delights of modern Korean cuisine.
There's a great buzz around Korean food right now, as more and more people experience the fantastic, robust flavours of both classic Korean cooking and the Ameri-Korean strand that has developed from it. There are no better authors than Da-Hae and Gareth West to introduce this flavoursome cuisine - Da-Hae uses her Korean background to explain the details of traditional recipes, and Gareth shows how Korean and Western flavours can be fused together to create really delicious combinations.
From a run-down on the basics of Korean cooking, including now readily available sauces, pastes and other ingredients, through chapters on kimchi and the etiquette of the famous Korean BBQ, to recipes for everything from the irresistible Bulgogi Burger and spicy, sticky spare ribs to Panjeon (seafood pancakes) and corn on the cob with kimchi butter, this book is packed with inventive, delicious recipes that will open your eyes to how great modern Korean food is.
Hot chef Dan Hong has worked at some of the top restaurants in Sydney and his boundless enthusiasm for experimenting will not disappoint in this unique collection of his favourite recipes.
Dan's appetite for rare sneakers, hip-hop and collecting cookbooks is only surpassed by his passion for food: everything from fast food to fine dining.
Growing up in the suburbs of Sydney with a food-obsessed family and a mother who fell into owning a Vietnamese restaurant by chance, Dan has gone on to become a critically acclaimed chef, working at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Australia, including Sydney's Mr Wong, Ms G's and El Loco.
Dan's potent mix of proud heritage, technical skill and boundless enthusiasm for experimenting with big, bold, fresh flavours makes his approach to food truly unique. Mr Hong is as much an exploration of Dan's colourful path through life as it is a beautifully illustrated book of one hundred scintillating recipes -- Vietnamese, Chinese, Mexican, as well as fusions of the three -- re-imagined and re-invigorated for a new generation of food obsessives. Feast your eyes and dig in.
